FLORENCE — A little gloomy weather wasn’t enough to keep a crowd away from an afternoon and evening of live country and classic rock Saturday at the second annual Florence Music Fest.

Organizers estimate 2,000 people, most not wearing masks, came through the gates throughout the day.

“We feel the entire event went very well,” festival managers Keith Rea and Bill Foster told PinalCentral by email. “We have excellent security, staff and volunteers that worked their tails off to make this event happen.

“The rain did roll in twice during the evening hours. Attendees ran for cover and then quickly made it back to the main stage area once the rain stopped. Our events are always an ‘all-weather’ affair, the show must go on!

“We would just like to thank all the town staff that helped make this event possible, especially the Parks and Rec Department. They went out of their way to help us in any way possible. The town of Florence should be proud of their Parks and Rec Department, they do one heck of a job making and helping events happen. We also can’t say enough about our sponsors this year, without them we couldn’t have offered a free event.”
